State Senator Creigh Deeds says more needs to be done to improve mental health care in Virginia, but he does appreciate what the General Assembly has done so far. That includes extending the time period of a detention order and setting up an online registry to find psychiatric beds. Deeds was the guest speaker Monday before the National Press Club in Washington. Deeds spoke of the childhood of his son Gus, his noble acts, his faith, and his battle with mental illness. Deeds says he has not lost his focus or sense of urgency when it comes to reforming Virginia’s mental health laws.
